Summary
"Victorian Britain was a paradoxical society and one of extreme contrasts ... This course aims to explain how the Victorians lived with these contradictions and how Britain changed between the 1830s and 1900, perhaps more rapidly than any society in world history up to that time" --p. 1 (guidebook)
